WaPo’s Capehart: Sanders Pushed Hillary Further Left Than She Wanted to Go

Washington Post columnist and MSNBC contributor Jonathan Capehart reacted Saturday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” to the “Bernie or Bust” movement, saying they should support Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton because Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) pushed her more to the left than she intended.

“I took a picture of the person who said ‘support democracy, vote no on Hillary.’ I’m thinking, ‘Wait a minute, the platform, you got so many things on the platform that Senator Sanders was pushing for. You pushed Hillary Clinton to the left, further left than probably she would have wanted to go, and yet, a lot of those ‘Bernie or bust’ people are inside the convention hall, inside the club wearing tape over their mouths saying they were silenced by Hillary Clinton, and they’re heckling mostly on Monday, but they were heckling throughout Hillary Clinton’s speech on Thursday,” Capehart said.
